Remington Nitro Pheasant Premier Shotshells
Nitro Pheasants Loads
I grabbed a box of these while pattering a shotgun and found the shells to handle very well through a few redhead/briley chokes that I had. Shells are a little more pricier than promo game loads, but if you want a good shell with some extra penetration power, these are great.
After pattering these shells I took them out and have found myself using them for a lot of small game and other bird hunts.

I use these shells for grouse hunting and I was using a modified choke. I hit a grouse and could not find it, it exploded. These shells are very powerful and have a great pattern at long range. Recoil is not that bad either. At that time I realized that the load that I was using was too powerful for grouse hunting. The shot size was #4. The range was about 20 yards. Now I use these shells on turkeys since I have about 22 shells left. I do not fell like wasting them on birds that might blow apart when you hit them. These are a very good shells, recommend to anybody who hunts upland game birds!!!

I used the 3" and 2 3/4" Nitro's while Pheasant hunting in Kansas. I was not pleased with the knock down power of the 20 ga 3", however I switched to a box of 2 3/4 which increased the fps from 1185 to 1300 and that made the difference.

I took a box of the Remington Nitro Pheasant loads in #5 shot size on my first pheasant hunt to Kansas. I had purchased several different brands/sizes of shells but ended up using these as my primary shell. They performed flawlessly. The knockdown was great, no second shots required. I was using a Franchi I-12 and had no mis-feeds or any other problems. I would highly recommend these shells.
